Buoyed by the Syria outcome, anti-war groups are charging ahead.
On Wednesday, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) called the temporary blocking of a military intervention in Syria the greatest victory for the peace movement since the end of the war in Vietnam.
We oppose any Congressional military authorization and favor instead a forceful diplomacy based on a path to a cease-fire and power-sharing arrangements under international supervision. To those who claim that America's global credibility reputation is on the line, we say that we must act to save America from its recent reputation for engaging in unnecessary, unaffordable and unwinnable wars.
Since 2001, terrorism and instability have increased wherever the U.S. has intervened militarily. We call on the President and Congress to rethink the false premises of an ever-expanding "global war on terror" in which Western-led alliances of absolute monarchs, corrupt governments and proxy forces fight endlessly proliferating enemies in more and more countries.

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently a supporter, they may not be aware that the legislation exists. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request for support. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
